MyCommunity Competition: My Southwark
Yesterday morning, the Eternal Tourist (yours truly) took a self-guided walking tour around Southwark which is the little area in which I work. It is tucked beneath London Bridge and spreads around Borough High Street all the way to Borough Station. I think it is safe to say that I am rather enamoured with this historic and understated area and I jumped at the chance to take part in the MyCommunity Contest over at Gumtree.
It has all been quite exciting really. On Saturday morning, I received a mysterious package in the mail. I was thrilled to discover a small digital camera, a Moleskine notebook, a pencil and instructions to capture the very best of my community. I decided to focus on Southwark because I was long overdue on a photowalk and I had promised you all some more photos of Southwark Cathedral.
The photos I took are attached in the slide show above and once the competition is over, I'll tell you all about them in more detail and take you on your very own personal photowalk!
For now, I need your help and support! Success in the competition is based on the number of (relevant) comments I get on this post and over at the forum at Gumtree.
Please can you visit my entry My Southwark at Gumtree and either leave a comment here or on my forum listing there. Tell me about your own experiences in Southwark – have you been to Borough Food Market or Southwark Cathedral? Can you tell me something about Southwark I didn’t already know? What do you think of the photographs? What will you get in return? Why, I’ll be posting a personal thank you note with links to your blogs at the end of the week.
Next week will be a bumper filled Southwark week here on Emm in London because not only will I be posting the photos above, I’ll also be posting an update on The Shard development too. Stay tuned and help me win the competition please!
